Fighting your weakness!

Fighting your weakness!

Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16

Eric was struggling with a bad habit. He knew it very well. His friends and family members encouraged him to leave that habit. He agreed that it would be good for his health and relationships if he quit that habit. When others explained how they overcame that weakness, he would say, “I am happy for you. But I feel like I cannot come out of this. I shouldn’t have fallen into this trap, but now I’m struggling with it,” he answered.

Some might come out of any bad habit immediately. But many struggles with it. Although it is not understandable why it is difficult to go out of specific patterns, we should know one thing for sure – No matter what path we have taken, we can always turn back to God. We should stop attempting to do things independently and start depending on God.

Jesus was also tempted like us, so He understands how we feel (Mark 1:13). For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15,16). God uses others and mature believers to assist us in these areas.

No matter what you are struggling with today. God loves you more than you could ever imagine. He is always faithful to helping us.

    Depending on God – one of the biggest challenges we have. We love to do things our way. But He is waiting with open arms to embrace the fallen.
